Leave out the un-needed stress
My apologies, but I would like to add my own 2 cents to this forum page ... From what I read, many of the ideas like more varied floor plans, a non-static decorating system, stables, the ability to have multiple houses on one account, additional storage for those who have more then one toon ... All these ideas are wonderful. Even the ideas concerning adding more housing related crafts, fests and quests ... Brilliant. I, for one, would like to see more involvement in the housing areas.
But, I would like to strongly recommend leaving out any negative or stress inducing concepts like decor wear and penalties for not using the houses. I do not want to feel harassed by the concept of just wanting a house of my own to decorate, store things in, and feel part of the LOTRO world. There is enough for me to worry about other then is my house intact from the last time I left it?
Have fun storming the castle!
